Tickets NOW SOLD OUT
Triptych is a triple bill Walking Concert featuring some of Birmingham’s most exciting performer/composers. Taking place over 3 hours at 3 venues, 3 groups of musicians will each perform 3 sets using sonic material drawn from workshops, exhibitions and sound walks taking place over the Ten Acres of Sound Festival.
Starting at one venue and moving to the next every hour, each of the three audiences will experience its own unique version of the event, observing the beginning, middle and end of three different stories. Bring facemasks. Expect fireworks.
The concerts will all be fully distanced and Covid-safe, with small audiences for each performance . There will be table service available at Artefact, Anjuna Lounge and the Wildcat.
Triptychs will be performed by:
Georgia Denham is a Birmingham-based composer/singer whose music draws on a love of visual arts, anecdotal experiences and working with individuals to create new music.

She has performed her own vocal music at Leeds Lieder Festival, CODA Festival, Snape Maltings and Orgelpark, Amsterdam.

He has performed and appeared with, FOOD (Iain Ballamy & Thomas Strōnen), The Neil Yates & Mike McGoldrick Undivided bigband, composer and Sid Peacock’s Surge Orchestra featuring Django Bates and balkan-folk festival favourites The Destroyers.
Sarah Farmer is a Birmingham based artist and musician mostly working with sound, violins and improvisation. A poor woman's scientist and crafts person, taking an interest in questions of science and and technology and exploring them through hands on endeavours of making and sharing through a medium of sound, D.I.Y, found materials, wood and strings and the odd bit of electronics.
Chris Mapp is a bass player, composer and improviser whose music falls somewhere in the cracks between improvised and electronic music. His band Gonimoblast featuring renowned musicians Mark Sanders, Leafcutter John and Dan Nicholls have recently released a double album with special guests Arve Henriksen and Maja S. K. Ratkje.

Her music explores abstract and recognizable sound worlds and all the spaces in between.
